Best plant-based protein foods

Protein is a macronutrient composed of amino acids. The other macronutrients are carbohydrates and fats, a healthy diet includes balancing those macros and eating them clean and smart.

Eating enough protein is necessary to keep and build lean muscle, especially when we have active and healthy lifestyles. As many studies have revealed, plants are a meaningful source of protein. So, if we are looking for a diet rich in proteins, a plant-based diet is effective. Moreover, you will be contributing to your health and stopping climate change.
